We flirt with board game romance novels and resist the tastiest tabletop pieces on the Dicebreaker Podcast

Oh, and there’s the latest news too.

On this week’s Dicebreaker Podcast, Matt, Johnny and Lolies run through what we’ve been playing and discuss the latest headlines from the world of tabletop, before settling down with a cheesy romance novel - board game-themed, of course - and treat ourselves to some deliciously inedible game pieces.

Hot off the presses, we question this year’s Origins Awards winners, lament the cancellation of PAX Unplugged, look ahead to some of this winter’s upcoming releases and discuss the latest record-breaking Pokémon card sale.

We also attempt to come up with the most romantic board game book taglines, scientifically determine the tastiest board game pieces and offer our advice on turning your tabletop hobby into a career. Plus more of your questions answered and plenty of other chatter and debate.

Find the latest Dicebreaker Podcast on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher and Google Podcasts now. Alternatively, stick the RSS feed into your player of preference.

You can also choose to watch the video podcast on the Dicebreaker YouTube channel, and catch up on any episodes you’ve missed.
